Moongalba.png

Following a major refurbishment, Moongalba was officially opened to the school community in 2019. Meaning 'meeting place', the Minjerribah Moorgumpin Elders were consulted on appropriate names for the building and the learning spaces within which reflected the school values; 

Kabul (Carpet python)

As totem ancestor of the Noonuccal people, Kabul was not allowed to be harmed, hunted or eaten. People from other tribes were allowed to kill and eat it, however it was the responsibility of the Noonuccal people to ensure it was only hunted in the correct season. 

Merriginpah (White-bellied sea eagle) 

In traditional life, people of the Quandamooka looked to Merriginpah for a sign that it was time to hunt mullet. Merriginpah would not strike the lead fish but rather those further back in the shoal, ensuring the lead fish would lead the school on their migratory path. Merriginpah taught how to hunt with integrity.

Buwangan (Dolphin)

In traditional life, people of the Quandamooka worked cooperatively with Buwangan to achieve a successful catch of mullet. Buwangan would be called by the men hitting their spears and women slapping their branches on the water, herding the mullet closer to the shore line. This relationship built out of respect for one another ensured both Buwangan and the peoples of Quandamooka shared in the caught mullet. 


While physical resources, such as books, still play an essential role in Moongalba, digital resources and the physical learning spaces are being dramatically revolutionised. The emerging learning environments are future-proof to withstand the ever changing nature of teaching and learning,  to more effectively facilitate our practices and emerging digital technologies, distance education and flexible timetables of our students. The areas have been designed to allow for collaborative, flexible and engaging spaces. ​​
